Dh's work has a nice company party we all go to with a fancy buffet. If we're flush, we stay in the hotel and have breakfast out the following day, shop, etc. If we're not, we don't have any drinks and we go home afterwards instead. (everyone's professional drivers, so we don't take any chances with DUIs, not even one
If we're really
flush, we also spend a night in one of the local resorts and do a luau during the holidays. Then we spend Christmas at home, whichever day we actually get to celebrate. Sometimes he ends up working on Christmas day so we have our family Christmas the day before or after. One year we opened presents very early

All our extended family is on the mainland, so no worries about traveling, rushing, hassles, etc.
For New Year's we'll fix fancy food and stay in. As an ex-bartender I'll always consider it amateur night, and drunk driving is such a problem here you couldn't pay me to leave the house that night. Especially

while stone cold sober on our treacherous roads.
